Trip on Memory Lane: The Solo Show of JoKa
JoKa is a contemporary artist specializing in pointillism, using toothpicks as his sole form of paint application. A student of inefficiency, his personal philosophy is “it isn’t art if it doesn’t take three times longer than it’s supposed to!” Common subjects include: raw meat, charbroiled meat, sex, dissection, hypnosis, mammalian societal bonds, youth corruption, obesity, morbid obesity, swashbuckling, insects, male-pattern baldness, bumps, self-loathing, candy corn and clones. Using collage, he skews and distorts, pushing familiar images into the surreal. His work has been called nostalgic, though not by him. Based in Philadelphia, his art has been featured nationally as well as internationally, and in national art publications. He is a carnivore. Find him on the InterWeb at
